Chapter Three: What!? We’re Being Chased!?

“They seem to be unconscious.” called the smaller orange haired boy.

My eyes widened and I tried to get over to them but when I stood, I felt dizzy and I just fell back down again.

“Don’t push yourself.” said the black haired boy. “So what’s your name?”

“Adrienne, my name’s Adrienne.” I answered.

“And what about those two?” he asked as he motioned over to Bell and Alaina.

“Those are my friends Bell and Alaina.” I answered.

“Do you remember what happened to you?” he questioned.

My eyes widened.

I can’t tell him about our trip over here, I reminded myself.

I shook my head.

The black haired boy scowled and said to his pals, “Seems that she doesn’t remember what happened to them.”

“Really? They must have been hit hard…” answered the taller orange haired boy.

“Um…what are your names?” I asked.

The black haired boy looked at me confused. Afterwards his eyes widened as he remembered that he didn’t introduce himself.

“My name is Kano.” introduced the black haired boy.

“I’m Kin.” said the tall orange haired boy.

“And I’m Kiyoshi.” said the short orange haired boy with the Band-Aid on his face.

“Nice to meet you.” I said with a smile.

“So do you not remember anything?” asked Kin.

I nodded.

“I only remember my friends’ names and my name, how old we all are and what are fa- I mean dogs’ names are. Oh and I remember our birthdays!” I said cheerily.

He sighed and shook his head.

“I suppose you aren’t completely useless…” he muttered.

I scowled at him but then looked back to the hand cuffs around his wrists.

“Why are you wearing those anyway?” I asked.

“Do you even know what these are?” asked Kano. There was something in his tone that just didn’t sit right with me. It was like he thought I didn’t know anything!

“Yeah, they’re hand cuffs. Cops carry them around so they can arrest…con…flicts…” Then I realized what I had gotten myself into. This guy was trying to get away from being arrested!

Oh…no, I thought. Bell and Alaina better wake up soon because there is no way that I can use my Halloween Magic here!

He smirked at me and so did his buddy Kin. Kiyoshi looked like he had no clue what was going on.

“Well it looks like you put the pieces of evidence together.” Kin smirked. “Though, I don’t think your going to enjoy what’s going to happen next.”

This isn’t good, I thought. How am I going to get out of this one!?

I heard someone groan and I looked over to Bell and Alaina. They were waking up!

“Alaina! Bell! Run!” I shouted.

They looked at me with confused looks on their faces but then they saw the guys.

“What the!?” they exclaimed in unison.

“Looks like we have to take care of those brats too…” grumbled Kin.

“Aww, but they look so cute! Can’t we let them stay with us for a while?” asked Kiyoshi, clearly not understanding what was going on.

A sweat drop appeared on my head as I thought, he sure is a clueless one, isn’t he?

Kin rubbed the back of his neck and stated, “Well we can’t kill all three of them. That would cause a huge mess and it would take forever to clean up the evidence. By then, that police officer is going to find you Kano.

Kano closed his eyes, like he was thinking. He soon opened them though and replied, “Yeah your right. Looks like we’re going to hold them captive until we can figure out how to cause them to have amnesia.”

I gulped. That didn’t sound so merciful, I thought.

“Hey you!” shouted a manly voice.

“Oh no! He found us!” exclaimed Kin in surprise.

Kano grabbed my wrist, even though it looked uncomfortable to run while dragging me along, and started running. I had no choice but to follow.

His grasp is so tight, I realized. It feels like my hand is going to fall off!

I looked behind us. Alaina was being dragged by Kiyoshi. Bell and Kin didn’t look like they were far behind.

“Where are you taking us!?” I shouted.

“Shut up!” growled Kano. “If that officer hears you then my bounty money will increase!”

Bounty money, I wondered. Does he mean that, people from all over are looking to kill him!?

“Kano! Turn right!” shouted Kin.

Kiyoshi laughed and shouted, “Weeeeeee!!! This is so much fun!”

A sweat drop appeared over my head again as I thought, he really is clueless…

Kano sharply took the corner and I almost lost my footing.

“Watch it!” I hissed.

He didn’t answer.

I looked at his face as best as I could. He looked determined to get away but at the same time, he looked like he was having…fun.

Well at least someone is enjoying this, I muttered inside my head.

After a long time of running, we finally stopped after we turned into a cramped ally way.

“That was - close.” panted Kano.

“Yeah - too - close.” responded Kin.

“That was so much fun!” exclaimed Kiyoshi.

Kano and Kin were quick to cover the little boy’s mouth.

“Shush Kiyoshi! Do you really want to be arrested along with Onee-chan!?” they whispered sternly.

My eyes widened.

Onee-chan, I thought. Does that mean that Kiyoshi is Kano’s younger brother?

“Um…excuse me. How do you three know each other?” asked Alaina.

They all looked at her. They seemed surprised that one of us would even ask.

“Why, we’re brothers.” they told us.

“What!?” we exclaimed.

“Shh! Do you want to be arrested just for hanging out with us!?” they whispered sternly.

“No.” answered Bell.

“Then I suggest that you be quiet.” Kin stated.

“Why would we be arrested just for being around you anyway?” I asked.

“We’re conflicts remember? We have been breaking the law for a couple years now so the police have told everyone to not get involved with us unless they want to be arrested.” explained Kano.

“That reminds me…” Kin pulled out something that looked like a lock pick and he pushed it into the locking mechanism of the hand cuffs. With one turn, he got the thing unlocked and the cuffs opened! Kano pulled his wrists out and started rubbing them a little.

“Thanks bro.”

Kin smiled and replied, “No problem Kano.”

“So how far are we away from home?” asked Kiyoshi.

“Hey.”

“Yeah?” I asked.

Now what does this brat want, I wondered.

“Will you go and check where we are? Just come back and explain what it looks like out there.” instructed Kano.

I sighed and asked curiously, “And what if I don’t?”

He slid his finger slowly over his throat and I gulped.

I nodded quickly as I understood what he was getting at and I quickly walked out of the ally way and looked around.

Suddenly I saw a officer and I quickly ran back into the cramped ally.

“So?” Kano pressured.

“Well there are a lot of shops around and I just saw an officer.” I explained.

Kin slapped his forehead and shook his head.

“Great…” grumbled Kano.

Kano turned to Kiyoshi and placed his hands on his shoulders as he kneeled down to meet eye contact with the small boy.

Now that I think about it, I wondered, isn’t that kid younger than us?

“Sorry Kiyoshi but your going to have to wait a while before we can get home.” he admitted to the small boy.

Kiyoshi’s eyes looked so sad after Kano told him that but he only nodded and said, “Ok.”

Kin kneeled down and made eye contact with the boy.

He smiled as he comforted, “Don’t worry bro, we’ll get home soon.”

Kiyoshi nodded.

Now that I look at them carefully, I comprehended, they don’t look like they are that bad…

The End
